With that much effort is the 151 the best track to use?

I'd be leary of too much attack angle.

Yes. Directly on the driveshaft.
The reason for this is so the chain drive can run directly down from driveshaft to rear front arm mount.
From there a second chain will run to the rear drive axle.
This is done so front chain tension will be constant as the front arm compresses through its foot of travel. front arm will be relocated to 6 inches from track bottom and 2 inches rear of stock. Front arm length will probably be a bit shorter. rails are from a xtra-12 polaris.

Pick up the pipe and start thinking outside the box.
Otherwise we would still have bogie wheel suspension and leaf springs.

What are you going to do to keep the track tension goods enough to drive the track. Done kind of compensator like the M-10 had that would move to keep tension while the track compressed.
